The school that the kids go to has 2 different campuses, one for the junior students and one for the senior students. The junior campus is 2 blocks from our house and is where the Equestrian Centre is based where the 'horsey' one spends many hours. Earlier this year 2 cats appeared and were adopted as stable cats and promptly named Tiddles and Molly. Unfortunately the teacher in charge was a little tardy with them visiting the vet for their operations and Tiddles while still a baby herself became a mother to 5 little kittens. Even sadder just a week or two after they were born Molly was run over. While it is school holidays it is the 'horsey' ones responsibility to look after and feed Tiddles and the kittens twice a day. A chore the whole family has come to relish. They are SO cute and all have such different coloring. Tiddles has gone missing since the day before yesterday and SH and I think perhaps she was hit by a car. Luckily the kittens are about 5 weeks old now and will survive. There is Mo (black), Sylvester (white and black), Jaffa (black with some orange coloring), Indi (white, black and ginger) and Peter (who I named , tabby). At this stage we think Peter will come home with us when he is a little older to be a companion for Fred and Jimmy although I have said tonight I will take all of them if new homes can't be found. SH had a little to say about that!! I keep reminding him that when I outlive him as an old lady I will be found in a house full of cats!!!!!!!!!!!! I haven't managed to get photos of all of the kittens but the ones I have will show how cute they are.
I survived the first day back at work and luckily for me I don't have to work tomorrow. As I am tired and they are showing another episode of 'America's next top model' tonight I am afraid it will just be knitting again!
I give thanks for super cute little kittens which make me smile and I pray for their mum Tiddles and hope that wherever she is she will rest knowing we are looking after her babies.
